    WASHINGTON – In assuring Americans that BP won't control the compensation fund for Gulf oil spill recovery, President Barack Obama failed to mention that the government won't control it, either.

    That means it's anyone's guess whether the government can, in fact, make BP pay all costs related to the spill.

    Obama aimed high in his prime-time Oval Office address Tuesday night — perhaps higher than the facts support and history teaches — as he vowed to restore livelihoods and nature from the still-unfolding calamity in the Gulf of Mexico.

    A look at some of his statements and how they compare with those facts:

    Well, at least he didn't tell outright lies like Bush and the Republicans.

    We are still stuck in Iraq...costing us TRILLIONS...because of Bush. Did you REALLY think he would no longer have culpability simply because his term ended?

    Typical response. When faced with facts, you turn to Bush.

    This thread isn't about the war in Iraq, how much it's costing or former President Bush. Stay on topic please.

    Then why did the Democrats ramp us up to this war back in the nineties insisting there were WMD's and that Iraq had to be dealt with?

    I'm not trying to dismiss anything and I haven't said a word about Obama's out-of-control spending .... in this thread.

    Please re-read the article I posted in the OP.
